Jamaica Blue – Noarlunga Centre, SA

Centro Colonnades, Noarlunga Centre, SA, 5168

I ended up here for a coffee last Saturday, when I was meant to be in a workshop session during a conference I was attending nearby and was pleasantly surprised.  In the middle of a pretty typical Australian shopping centre, in a larger than average kiosk type cafe, we discovered jamaicablue – and what’s more, their coffee is Fairtrade!!  Unfortunately there are only two other jamaicablues’ in SA – one in Port Pirie, and the other at West Lakes – but if you are in the vicinity, drop in and try!  They also sell coffee beans!

Latte Quality – Excellent – mine had a really nice colour, a proper amount of foam – and was really nice to drink.  I noticed some of the others were different (one had a few cms of foam) – but no one complained.

Cost – $4.20 – for a large latte – which was about 500mls

Coffee Supplier – Jamaica Blue

Fair Trade – Yes!  The logos were on more than half of their bagged coffee, and the coffee we drank was also Fairtrade.

Venue Suitable for:

  • Quiet Chat – possibly – it is in the centre, kiosk style, of a large shopping centre – so for a casual chat most definitely.
  • Deep and Meaningful – Maybe…
  • Study and Reflection – No…the area is just too busy.

Not forgotten

I have not forgotten about this blog, nor have I  been on a coffee fast.  However, fast is a way to describe my experience of time duration over the past few weeks and while coffee has been consumed in new and exciting places, blogging reviews has yet to be achieved.  But fear not – notes have been kept, impressions written down, experiences savoured – and in due course (or dew coarse – depending on how you view things) latte reviews will be posted on Cafe Pallazo, Norwood; Jamaicablue, Noarlunga Centre; and Aquacaf, Goolwa.
